Photography

When he began traveling with the Cowboys, Lilly took his camera with him wherever he went. Before and after games, he spent an increasing amount of time studying and photographing old sports stadiums. When he was not busy wreaking havoc in the opposing team's backfield, Lilly was learning to appreciate the subtler lines of architectural forms and the interesting ways light and shadow played across them. He began to notice the more abstract effects of composition, paying greater attention to unique angles of certain structures, or the juxtaposition of one building with another. It was also during this time that Lilly began to focus on nostalgic themes, such as old street lanterns, closed fueling stations and railway yards.


After retiring from the NFL and moving to Waco, Texas, Lilly’s photographic interests broadened to include other natural settings—particularly those cast in the light of a rising or setting sun. He was quickly drawn to scenes that recalled his childhood in Throckmorton, Texas. Rural themes such as old paint-chipped barns and churches, or windmills creaking in a sea of golden grass, appear consistently throughout Lilly’s work. Remembering family fishing trips to Pagosa Springs and Durango, Colorado in his early teenage years, Lilly began taking photographs of the mountains of this region—capturing mineshafts iced in snow, preserved alongside trout-filled, babbling streams.
